Neha Rawat started this petition to CM of Jharkhand Raghuwar Das and

Jeetrai Hansda, a professor at the Government School and College for Women, Sakchi, in Jharkhand was arrested.

The FIR lodged at the Sakchi police station in Jamshedpur, stated that Hansda had written a Facebook post asserting that the adivasi community in India has had a long tradition of eating beef and ceremonial cow sacrifice. It is their democratic and cultural right to consume the meat, he said. The post also said that they oppose India’s laws on eating beef and that his community also consumes peacocks, the country’s national bird. He also expressed his unwillingness to follow Hindu customs.

Adivasi are also the Indian citizen and we must follow our culture and tradition so it may not vanish. So sacrifing cow and eating beef is not wrong for us. We are the first people of this land and through many centuries we were following our tradition. Therefore we need immediate action to release Professor Jeetrai Hansda.
